the islamist threats confronting america. today, americans simply do not have what washington called the right understanding of the threats from the persian gulf region. in my writings i thought to acquaint americans with the nature of these threats. whether from iran in its a religion is in iraq and lebanon, the vicious martial anti-christian, anti-jewish and anti-western brand of islam is theology exporter under saudi arabia's official, or the forces of osama bin laden, al qaeda and other sunnis islamists lead and insight. and i also argued that the united states government under both parties is fighting an islamist enemy that does not exist. and, therefore, it is a policy that runs counter to america's historical traditions, and so to its best interests. official washington islamist enemy is the stuff of hollywood farce. beat a shia or sunni, the islamists are a limited band of fanatic nihilists, ready to kill widely and indiscriminately for the pure joy of murdering. and ready to sacrifice their lives because my daughters go to university, i went hold early presidential primaries every fou
responsibility to protect america from a terrorist attack. >> hello. as fighting intensifies on the crown, so does an international debate on military options in libya, which could include a no- fly zone. amid growing concern about the bombing of rebel-held areas by gaddafi's forces, there are voices in the u.s. and europe calling for the rebels to be armed to directly. it sounds simple, but history offers plenty of cautionary tales. in a moment, we will hear whether senator john mccain thinks it is a good idea. >> what i am calling for is a greater access for the libyan opposition forces for weaponry. >> there is no guarantee that by helping these people, you necessarily bring about a more democratic outcome or more desirable outcome. >> the question is, what kind of arms with a supply? whom would supply them? britain session -- britain's special forces may have suffered a setback last week in libya. but the momentum is still building in the west for military intervention of some kind, including perhaps arm the rebels. in libya, repeated bombing by government warplanes around the rebel-held
standard. our invasions, he wrote, have been liberations. the weekly standard says libya will be america's fifth war of muslim liberation. they even posted alongside this editorial this portrait of the american revolutionary war. i am not sure of the exact analogy. when you think about it, the american colonial rebels are, maybe, they are benghazi, in which case the u.s. intervening in libya is like, like, yeah, okay, the analogy doesn't make sense at all. still, you get the idea. a noble image. libya already america's fifth war of muslim liberation. and that, that triumveret claim is from the right. that is why president obama is doing what he is doing the way he is doing it in libya. it is the overarching america in the world challenge of the obama presidency. it is the overall america in the world challenge of all americans after the george w. bush era. this image, still promoted by the american right, even now, that the u.s. is stomping around the muslim world, imposing our desires on those savage people because frankly we know better. that is the narrative of america in the world in
for destruction of israel and then the spread to america. that is coming up. but it all ties in to the 12th imam, christian anti-christ. and it also ties in to what else is going on in the middle east. it's a little strange. let's start here at home first, with your wallet. the man who runs the largest bond fund in the entire world, so he probably knows a thing or two, says the u.s. treasurys, the things, you know, our debt have "little value" because of our ever-increasing debt burden. warren buffett suggested avoiding betting on the u.s. dollar because he believes it's about to tank. wall street is increasing their interest in what they call tail risk. what that is, is funds that are being set up by pimco, deutsche bank now and other wall street firms. we have been called crazy and we told you prepare. prepare. for massive stock market dives. the funds lose 15% per year in normal conditions but they are structured they're structured to cash in big-time in a time of crisis. nobody has done these before. people are now saying, i don't think this is good. something is going on. what else can i do
enforcement. i think the testimony today backed that up. not that that there are too many mosques in america. >> sheriff, a little earlier you heard the association that care warns people any need to have a lawyer before they talk to law enforcement. do you feel like that your jurisdictional residents whether they're muslim, jewish, christian, should have to have a lawyer before they talk to you or one of your sheriff deputies to inform you about something they see as being a potential problem? >> no, i don't personally believe they should take that initial step. so to answer your question, no. >> do you believe your sheriff deputies, when out interacting in the communities and doing their community policing and talking with merchants and individuals should, before they talk to them, warn them they have the right to an attorney before they talk to the sheriff's deputy? yes or no? >> if we have a suspicion that they're about to commit a crime, then -- >> then yes? >> there is only so many questions you can have before you have to advise them of their constitutional right. that's one of the ke
is in south america, but it's considered part of the caribbean, and they came to cut, to work on sugar plantations. so part of what fascinated us was what is this substance where someone in be his family -- in his family all the way in russia, a serf, and someone in my family looking to get a better life over here in india and then over to the caribbean, what is this substance that could effect people from such different parking lots of the world? -- parts of the world? >> and before we trace that out, we want to ask you a question. how many of you think you might have sugar somewhere in your family background? so that's one, two, three -- oh, man, yes! yes! >> all right. what i'm going to do, i just want to hear from a couple of you where your family might have been from, okay? >> well, i think my family might have been in the caribbean -- >> caribbean. >> okay, absolutely. >> okay, very good. okay? >> i feel my family was either in the caribbean or in europe. >> very good. >> okay, okay. >> i think my family was either in the caribbean or europe. >> okay. very good. anybody else here
but apologize for america, literally since he's been in office. now he's in a position where he has to be the commander in chief and it is just beyond him. he did the same in his speech at west point when he announced the surge less than what general petraeus asked for and announce add end date this summer this is the same problem. if you try to please everyone, you will end up pleasing no one. >> sean: this is a problem. if the center of gravity, in other words in terms of world leadership, is now because of america's failure or america gives it up, and is now shifted to europe, if they now make those decisions if the president doesn't go to congress, there are angry liberal congressmen about this, but goes to the united nations and he basically uses them as his justification, and doesn't seem to have the real commitment, it seems he doesn't really believe that america's place in the world ought to be one of moral leadership. fundamentally, what message does that send the world? >> think of what he said today. he basically said today, i'm paraphrasing, he says, if there's a people
is moderate america looking for a solution. i think these hearings or an opportunity for muslims to address at solution. let me be clear and state up front that the u.s. has a significant problem with muslim radicalization. i'm muslim and i realize it's my problem and i need to fix it. that's what i'm trying to do. it's unfortunate that you have some of the best work on radicalization is being done by nonmuslimsike nypd record on radicalization. most muslim groups condemn that report when we should have been doing that report. let me state clearly it is a problem that we can only solve. christians, jews, nonmuslims cannot solve muslim radicalization. yes, there may be other types of violent extremism, but that cannot be solved by nonmuslims. so we can close our eyes and pretend it doesn't exist. we can call everybody a bigot or islamaphobe, but you're not going to solve the problem and the pblem is increasing exponentially. i hope we can get behind this blind concept of violent extremism. radicalization is a continuum. cooperation is a continuum. i personally have never known a muslim that

. in the past two decades, america has intervened militarily on foreign land and on foreign ocean. kuwait, somalia, haiti, bosnia- herzegovina, kosovo, afghanistan, iraq. this sunday in fact, march 20th is the 8th anniversary of the u.s. shock and awe bombing of iraq. on march 20, 2003 the u.s. invaded iraq under the assumption of saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. here is former secretary of defense this week describing them. >> what happened was that everyone in greed, the u.n. that he had stockpiled and had the ability in a matter of weeks to have weapons of mass destruction. >> the ongoing press coverage of libya has eclipsed the coverage of the ongoing war in afghanistan. this sunday is the 8th anniversary of iraq war. in the afghanistan war, the number of u.s. troops that have been killed to date is 1496. in the iraq war, the number of u.s. troops that have been killed is 4439. in the calculus, the afghanistan war and iraq war combined have cost the u.s. in excess of $1 trillion. that's 1,000 billion. one billion is 1,000 million. question, does president obama have a p
to be significant in america. often, prejudice has been directed at religions of recent immigrants. in the last entry it was catholics from places like ireland, italy, in lithuania. my mother's country of origin, whose loyalties were questioned. i brought to this hearing a family treasure. 100 years ago in 1911, my grandmother landed in baltimore, maryland, from lithuania. she brought with her my mother, two years old, and my aunt and uncle. and they came down off the boat in baltimore, and somehow found a way to my grandfather in east st. louis element. i have no idea how they made that journey not speaking a word of anguish. there is no physical evidence left of that journey, but this little book. part of it is a catholic prayer book written in lithuania, printed in 1863, which at the time of their immigration was contraband. bazaar had ordered all prayerbooks had to be written in russia. my grandmother who i never knew knew that if she brought his prayer book to america she would have the freedom to use it. and i remember that and it's one of the reasons why this is the first hearing, this f
conference organized by the united states of america and also in fighting for president of all countries in the region. that shows our markets are too small to attract really important investors. and this is very high and i hope president clinton will join us because he was one of the people who inspired ourselves to organize a conference. this was said by president alija izetbegovic, is very important. it is important to have bosnia and herzegovina connected to croatia, slovenia and croatia, bosnia and herzegovina is very important. of this region can be really motivated economically by building an infrastructure together for communication. >> if i could ask jim and catherine ashton, croatia has fantastic tourism and so does montenegro and slovenia. what is it that is holding back that investment into this part of the world? >> you have a number of investors coming.

[laughter] >> they were like 20 years buy the time they got to china, they were very young and have all the menial tasks. it took a good 10 years to come into their own as men. but they really did make a difference because they really were presented and what ever realm of life of the country they were being mining, engineering, telecom mining, engineering, telecommun, navy, brought a fresh spirit and self confident attitude that made a great change that by the way is what i see everywhere today in

president obama's views on the tea party in america has been exposed.ç stunning excerpts from a new book reveal the president's belief that racism was in fact a deep seated motivation of the movement. the absurd assessment can be found in family of freedom, presidents and african-americans in the white house. according to the book at a private white house dinner in may of 2010 the president explained that race was wobbly a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right wing activists in the tea party movement. rather than dispute that notion, president obama agreed and reportedly called racism the subterranean agenda of the movement. without a shred of evidence the president has no problem labeling the tea party as racist. in recent years he's been quick to if forgive racially insensitive remarks made by some on the left. remember when joe biden said this. >> sean: not long after that statement was made, all was forgiven. when it was revealed that harry reid once refered to mr. obama as a light-skinned african-american with no negro dialect.
commissioners are doing, all over my state, all over america. we have got to recognize that washington is spending too much, not taxing too little. how can we ask americans to pay more in taxes when washington is not even willing to cut cut $61 billion from our bloated bureaucracy? if i have a proposition from our colleagues who wish to raise taxes before we consider asking the american people to pay another cent in taxes, why don't we first drain every cent of waste from the federal bureaucracy? we will never truly dig ourselves out of this crisis and put this nation on a real path to prosperity unless we bring our spending under control. america's strength is not measured by the size of our government, but the scope of our freedoms and the vigor and vitality of the american people and their willingness to invest and work hard for the future. that's what makes us strong. endless spending, taxing and borrowing is a certain path to decline, and we're on that path today and we must get off it. so we know the threat, we know what we need to do. the economy is trying to rebound. so let's t
america? >> including the united states. that's why i mentioned those mosques. there are mosques in cincinnati and l.a. and new york, all across the country that have been part of saudi investments and their ideology abroad. and in order to counter that we need atrategy to help counter those institutions building those ideas. >> dr. jasser, and all of our witnesses today, thank you so much for being here and, dr. jasser, i applaud you being a bold voice on this subject. thank you. >> thank you. i yield back. >> thank you for yielding. i recognize the gentleman from texas, a former member of this committee, mr. green, good to have you back. >> thank you. it's an honor to be back. mr. chairman, ranking member thompson, i came by today because i love america. i love what america stands for. i love the pledge of allegiance. it means something to me. liberty and justice for all. i love the declaration of independen, all persons created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. i love the constitution, a copy of which i hold in my hand. we the people is what i
by a congressman who already said that unfortunately there are too many mosques in america, it tells you the political -- that he's applying this on the muslim community. unfortunately, he brought a star witness who has no experience in terrorism or radicalization, a physician who has no knowledge or legit macy within the muslim community. that does not mean he is not entitled to his opinion no matter how wrong they were. so today what we have seen we have seen in political theater, we have seen scapegoating, and no one of us will think the investigation, the inquiry should not take place. it should take place, but it should be a fact-finding exercise not political theater as we have seen today. >> and asra, the biggest concern would be the inability to distinguish between the most extreme interpretation of islam that is the news of recruiting a mechanism of some kind anywhere in the world and the other 99% of the islamic practitioners in this world who neither share that interpretation or practice. do you feel that this political environment or the american people or the world is capabl
with it the right resources by countering that ideology. the narrative says that america is against muslims, it creates this that america is going to iraq, to convert, kill them, attack them. that's the narrative. we can present our strategy so far has been try to break down that propaganda. that's wrong. we need to have a forward strategy of liberty minded freedom minded ideas into the islamic consciousness. we can do that as muslims but we need your help through websites, a social network. look what happened in egypt and tunisia through social networking and that countered a lot, that wasn't islamists that did that. most was secular muslims that wanted to take control of their future. when we have a government that produces a report and after the hassan incident and the word muslim or islam or jihad isn't in the document, you wonder why we are so paralyzed in treating this, i as a muslim i need this conversation. if we're going to fix this cancer that's within, the whole viable wonderful beautiful faith that i practice, we need to be able to talk about it. it's like trying to treat cancer
to stop the radicalization within some muslims in america. so it will be interesting to see whether there is any interplay among the two groups today. since the rallies have just begun, impossible to say at this point. >> susan, we'll follow you throughout this hour. insight from a former diplomat akbar ahmed. he said he wants to help guide the direction of these hearings on capitol hill. we'll ask what he means by that. >>> dozens of police officers are being investigated for what they put on facebook. the controversial comments right after this. merica: we created the electricity that powered the alarm clocks and brewed the coffee. we heated the bathwater and gave kelly a cleaner ride to school. cooked the cube steaks and steamed the veggies. entertained dad, and mom, and a neighbor or two. kept watch on the house when they slept. and tomorrow we could do even more. we're cleaner, domestic, abundant and ready now. we're america's natural gas. the smarter power today. learn more at basic. preferred. at meineke i have options on oil changes. and now i get free roadside assi
